    Check Out the BFM Funny Car!

    Hello to all my Northern Friends! We are excited to be invited back to DragFest this year and look forward to seeing everyone. We will be running the same blue Funny Car we did last year but will be running a retro/setback 14-71 HH blower for the first time ever! We hope to break into the six second zone at over 200 MPH. Stop by the pits and say hello. We will also have our Bill Fuchs Motorsports INDUSTRIAL DISEASE T-shirts on sale at the Midwest Wild Bunch Tent and at our bus. If you come by with a BFM INDUSTRIAL DISEASE T-shirt on we will get you in the Funny Car for a picture and if you time it right and we need to fire up you can have the drivers seat for the warm up!!!! Thanks and hope to see you all there! Bill billfuchsmotorsports.com The Picture below is from last weekend. Spent all weekend making the setback plate but it turned out really nice Click image for larger version.

    Thanks! I can't remember what we ran there last year... must have been around 7.5 at 185. We had a blast and am very happy that the car club invited the full Midwest Wild Bunch up. We have been running with this group for 6 years now and it will be a great show. Pray for good weather!!

    I sat in one of those cars when I was like 18, it was at Lakehead Dodge for some reason... I've never been near a vehicle that struck so much fear into me before. Staring at the engine right in front of your face, half of the rear tires sitting pretty much right beside your face.. You have to be some kinda crazy to rock one of those down the strip.

    Welcome to the forum

    *scratch what I wrote* the car I sat in was a rail car of sorts like this

    What you're racing is equally as insane, however, and balls of steel are still required.

    We started with a cast iron 392 Hemi (just like in your picture!) It was crazy! We ran 7.87 with basically stock heads and a little 6-71 blower. Probably should have just stayed with that and saved myself about $30K Oh well its a fun time! I have some pictures of that first 392 on my web site if you want to check it out. billfuchsmotorsports.com Take care!

    Ha.. little blower.. That blower is the size of my engine..... I did check out your site actually - the motors you've got on there are gigantic looking.

    Well we spent 5 fun filled hours at the Canadian border before being turned around and told to leave! What fun! Never again. Hope DragFest went well, sorry we missed it. Bill

    That really sucks and seems slightly odd considering most of the Midwest Wild Bunch was there
